Rex and I were talking about doing another acoustic collaboration and decided to approach it in a new way. Instead of doing a cover of any kind, we wanted to do something unique to us. Instead of starting with music, we started with words - I wrote a poem called Children Together and sent it to Rex, who created an awesome and totally unexpected island tune as a setting for them. I am so happy with how this little experiment turned out! The song is meaningful to me as our first original collab, a new way for us to work together, and of course the lyrics are special to me. I added a tiny ukelele part to part of the song - that was fun, too. Thanks so much Rex! Looking forward to whatever we come up with to do next! smiley

Music: Rex
Melodies/Vocals/Lyrics: Carla J. P.
Artwork: Carla Cryptic

P.S. That's me in Hawaii! Seemed fitting... we started all of this in the summer so it's nice to hear this warm-weather music as it grays into winter for most of us.

Carla, yours is the perfect island voice. Rex's uke has found another fine address to live in with his playing. Have you ever sung a song from South Pacific called Bali Hai? Your voice reminds me of the lady that sang it.. I liked the ba ba ba's too and the peaceful ending.. My sincere compliments to you both

Thanks Joyce. smiley I love South Pacific and I've been thinking about uploading a version of Bali Hai lately, as a matter of fact! I do sound a bit like that actress now - hadn't realized that until I thought about it in light of your mentioning it. LOL I'm probably closer to her age now than when I first saw the film (though she was younger than the age she was playing in the film). Thanks for your kind comments!
